Postcard from DR

Dominican Republic Paradiso Trip2

Dominican Republic Paradiso Trip3The bride in Mary Katrantzou escorted by her father down the aisle

A belated postcard from Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic is in order, though it’s impossible to sum my amazing trip down to 9 photos. Four days of celebrating a friend’s dream wedding with a wonderful group of people seemed to be just what the doctor ordered.

The beautiful bride, Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster (founder of the Walkabout Foundation), was absolutely radiant in a fantastic creation by Mary Katrantzou, which was in fact Katrantzou’s first bridal creation ever.

As for myself I mostly sticked to the british designers this time around, and wore shorts by Charlie May and a top by Balenciaga, green dress by Amanda Wakeley, and a blue dress by Victoria Beckham.

At fashion weeks you can be certain that some of your favourite in season pieces will be popping up on someone else’s shoulders, hands and feet, and if not it’s certainly the right place to be to pick up some inspiration or two.

– Elena Perminova, hand over those Repossi rings (here and here) please!
– I could definitely make room for this Prismick bag by Roger Vivier.
– The Proenza Schouler jacket and open toe mules, oh yes!!!
– I don’t think I ever could get tired of denim overalls.
– Chunky knit-perfection in what looks like Celine!
– This woman, this eagle silk shirt by Stella McCartney (here and here)
– I’m obsessed with marble prints and that this top by Balenciaga (similar here) included.
– And just like that I want to fray my jeans too and wouldn’t mind pairing them with  Nicholas Kirkwood beauties.

Happy Monday!

All things checked

Bev Malik - photo by Hedvig Opshaug:Northern Light

As if I haven’t had other things than cozy knits in my head since my last post and all through fashion week, I choose to follow up with this beauty, fashion consultant Bev Malik, that I snapped the other day, wearing one of  my favourite knits from J.W Anderson A/W 2012. So wish I’d gotten this one myself, checked+mohair+V-neck, all boxes ticked!

Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.

Leandra in NY September 2012, wearing skirt by Ostwald Helgason and triobag by Celine.

A girl right up my street, who’s certainly gifted with a lovely attitude, style and writing skills, blogger Leandra Medine aka The Man Repeller, has written her first book. I will for sure lay my hands on it and expect nothing less than hilarious content. The book ‘Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.’ can be pre-ordered on Amazon, release date 10’th of September.

Ok, since I had enough of restless napping days at home waiting for my baby(!) I yesterday decided to do a little street style snapping at Burberry’s in Kensington Gardens where some of my favourite chic girls where parading around, Lena Perminova was one of them, in this perfect mix of high and low, a Burberry Prorsum peplum tweed jacket and skirt by H&M, bag by Analeena.

Hello Tiger

Everytime I scroll through my photo library this Kenzo bag always catches my eye, I guess I’m regretting a little I didn’t get it while in NY, a little tiger stuff in the wardrobe wouldn’t hurt anyone right?

Green envy

Green is one of my favourite colours, all shades included, so you can imagine my attraction to this woman’s outfit back in Paris was pretty obvious, I mean green and Proenza Schouler in one, couldn’t be any better. This gorgeous collarless tweed jacket from Proenza Schouler’s pre-fall 2012 collection has long time been sold out, but you’ll find the skirt here, though in orange/pink.

I’ve ran into Maria Kolosova, editor at Harper’s Bazaar Russia, many times lately and except for being incredible cute she always looks so well put together, with effort yes, but without trying too hard, just the way I like it! Like the other day at Chanel, where she looked absolutely stunning in this dream of a sequin jumper from Sportmax A/W-12.

I’ve had warm feelings for checked prints and tartan for a while now and dug out old favourite shirts from my wardrobe, and especially after seeing Dries Van Noten’s SS13 collection, I feel haunted. Beautiful Elin Kling rocked these checked trousers from Joseph over in NY and paired them with a simple tee, a tiny Chanel, heels, Ray Ban’s and a leather biker by Balenciaga, just loved this look!

D for Dior

Woop woop, I’m running way late with posts here, like always during fashion weeks I’m afraid. Here are just a few snap shots from yesterday with a little Dior buzz, will post more later, have a fabulous Saturday!

I’ll try to be more active on Instagram during the day where you can follow me on @hedvigso

I’ve never been into “granny-style” shaped bags, but this baroque pattern by Dolce & Gabbana looks so damn good peeking under the arm like this, imagine worn with an all darker outfit, jeans+white shirt  or a LBD. You’ll find similar shoulder bag version here.

Stylist Christina Centenera rocked the most amazing leather trousers yesterday by Australian label Ksubi, wouldn’t mind these at all!!!

I’m on the run again, but if you wanna see what I’m up to during the day, you’ll find me on Instagram under #hedvigso, yes I know, I’m like the last person in this universe to hook up on it, but better late than never right. Happy Friday everyone!

Usually the way I see it, it’s in the details and simplicity is the key, like a pair of rolled up sleeves and hems, perfectly demonstrated by Geraldine Saglio here in NY. Btw, I’m wondering where her heels are from, perfect hight and I really like the position of the heel, anyone who knows who they’re by?
